	By the Lres I have from London I expect the Draft of the Conveyance of Unthank etc from Sr Wr Blackett to Mr Selby is now with you - if it is so I should be very glad of it and hope you will be able to get the Ingrossments completed and sent to me in our Race Week as Sir Wr Blackett will be here the Week after and the Deeds may then be executed

	I suppose you understand there is to be a Counterpart and I find Mr Darwin expects to have the ingrossing it tho I don’t know how that is to be done without delaying the Business which has met with but too much already - A few days after Sir Walter’s Arrival I expect to be able to go to Buxton for a fortnight or so and to be back against our Assize Week and should be very happy if before I go this Business could be finished

	As to the time from Mr Selby’s entering to the premises to that of the executing the Deeds we must consider the best Way of adjusting it - In the mean time I should be glad of your opinion about it and am etc                               HR
